The nun who ate the holy foreskin of Jesus is not only creepy, but perhaps a little inaccurate. If we assume for a moment that Jesus was a flesh and blood human he most likely would not have his foreskin, being Jewish and all. What it all boils down to is that the medieval nun, Agnes Blannbekin imagined performing felatio on her Lord and savior. This, at any rate, is the interpretation put forth on the blog The Holy Prepuce

 

For me this illustrates the delusional state that most people like to think of as mystical. It also begs the question, if it is okay for a nun to give Jesus a blowjob then....well, never mind.

 

Putting my flippant comments aside for the moment I find myself wondering if the young nun experienced sexual abuse or some other sustained trauma. Whether at the hand of a family member or a priest, and I could see this mystical felatio fantasy being a way of coping with oral rape at the hands of a clergy member, Agnes Blannbekin stands as an aged old cautionary tale about the power of religion and the potential for delusion.
